The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

High Level Narcissists crowd our world today. They ar spouses, ex-spouses, relative, bosses, co-workers, spiritual mentors, acquaintances. Our society rewards narcissists handsomely with praise, adulation, celebrity and social status. The high level narcissist's raison d'etre is winning. 

High level narcissists weave grand visions of success that are designed to lead them to stashes of power, prestige and control. Winning electrifies the narcissist; it is the engine, the fire that keeps him/her going. 

High level narcissists are often big picture virtuosos who leave the details and hard work to others. They take advantage of their assistancts by underpaying them and overpromising while they carefully maintain their elite lifestyles. 

Above all, the high level is deceptive in all of his relationships and transactions. He bends the truth with automatic ease. 

Some narcissistic dreams go astray. When the ride gets bumpy or the high level whimsically decides to change course, offices are closed, employees are dumpted without warning, bills, loans and leases are left unpaid. Many are left in severe emotional and financial pain. The high level narcissist is unmoved. He doesn't lose sleep over his debacles. He steps forward and pivots toward his next grand project. 

Protect yourself from becoming enmeshed in the narcissist's destructive web. Learn to identify the highlevel narcissist. 

Remember who you really are. Respect your personal values. Practice self care each day: rest, sleep, nourishing food, hydration, unedited writing, your special music, your creative activities, Nature's beauty, use of your creative gifts.
